We know that a mesothelioma diagnosis can be emotionally and physically challenging.

We believe that support groups play a crucial role in providing solace, understanding, and a sense of community for individuals and families affected. In the face of a disease that can be isolating, our groups and activities offer a source of strength, understanding, and encouragement for patients and carers.

Our support groups offer an opportunity for patients and caregivers to share experiences, exchange information, and find comfort in the camaraderie of others facing similar challenges. Beyond emotional support, our dedicated nurses aim to provide valuable insights into treatment options, coping strategies, and practical advice, creating a network that empowers individuals on their mesothelioma journey.
